Masaryk University, located in Brno, is the second-largest public university in the Czech Republic and the leading higher education institution in Moravia. It is recognized as one of the most important teaching and research institutions in the Czech Republic and a highly-regarded Central European university. Masaryk University is currently educating over 35 000 students, 20 % of them international. The Faculty of Informatics was established in 1994 as the very first specialized faculty of its kind in the Czech Republic. The study program Applied Informatics joins a modern education in informatics with broader multidisciplinary overview especially of management, team work, and service economy principles. The ultimate goal of the study is to educate real T-shaped professionals, which are supposed to be both "deep and broad". Deep means that they have deep knowledge in a selected discipline (the core field of the study) and broad aims to multidisciplinary overlaps (communication skills across other fields). The part of the study is a guaranteed one semester internship in a real service-oriented business company. The internship creates a unique opportunity to use and confront knowledge obtained at university lectures with real problems in service-oriented business. The project solved during the internship as well as lessons learned from the stay in the real business serve as a base for a master thesis.
